The Stippled Boa (1862G-FGY)

The Stippled Boa (1862G-FGY)
The Stippled Boa (1862G-FGY)

This version of the Boa was specifically requested by the Designer. With a distinctive pattern of hand-tooled stippling on the titanium scales, this variant has a slightly organic appearance that evokes the scales on a snake. This stippling pattern is also reminiscent of traditional jigged bone scales seen on older traditional knives. While this pattern may be very visually appealing, it also offers exceptional grip and traction while in use making this version of the Boa both visually striking and highly versatile.

About the Designer: Johnathan Shaw

Johnathan Shaw
Johnathan Shaw

As a 17-year-old Canadian knifemaker, Johnathan Shaw is the youngest designer on the Artisan Team. From a very young age Johnathan had a keen interest in knives and tools. When this interest crossed paths with working with his hands, a brand-new fixation was formed: knifemaking. At age 14 he took a headlong dive into the craft and dedicated himself to creating the best knives he could. This lasted for just three years, as Johnathan recently closed his shop to begin a career in the Canadian Armed Forces as an Engineer Officer. While he is currently no longer able to make knives, he plans to return after university and start again. Until then, Johnathan will continue to work with companies like Artisan Cutlery to bring his designs to market.
